FREEMASONRY ?


The relationship that Freemasonry and Christianity share dictates an accountability of the accepted union. It would seem that the two organizations with such divergent objectives and adversative doctrines would create a conflicting confederacy. The real question, is can Freemasonry and Christianity harmoniously co-exist and remain pleasing to God?


Considering the affinity of some Christians for Freemasonry, perhaps the most disconcerting Masonic doctrine is that of the "mystic tie." Eminent Masonic scholar , Dr. Albert G. Mackey, explains the "mystic tie": "That sacred and inviolable bond which unites men of the most discordant opinions into one band of brothers, which gives but one language to men of all nations and one altar to men of all religions, is properly, from the mysterious influence it exserts, denominated the mystic tie; and Freemasons,because they alone are under its influence, or enjoy its benefits, are called "Brethren of the mystic tie."


The contemporary Mason may deny the existence of the mystic tie, and many Christian-Masons may, in all honesty, be unaware of it. The question is not in the denial or ignorance of the mystic tie, but what action is to be taken after one is enlighten. Can a Christian continue in a relationship with an organization that would relegate Jesus Christ to a position of equality with Krishna, Zoroaster, Dhouvanai, Hiram(Hiram is the Masonic redeemer), Horus, Plato, Balder or a redeemer under any other name? If we accept the Bible as God's word revealed to man, then we must believe the words of Jesus "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." (John 14:6)


Will involvement in the Lodge ultimately bring glory to Christ? Will Masonic membership enhance, or deter, evangelistic efforts in your area? Will you, as a Freemason, serve as a catalyst in the spiritual growth of your Christian brothers, or will you present a "stumbling block?"


2 Corinthians 6:14-15 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?


HIRAM IS THE REDEEMER OF FREEMASONRY----SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE BOUND TOGETHER WITH FREEMASONS?

  1. Great post, Steve.
    This is only one of many attempts by Satan to get people to ignore biblical doctrine for the purpose of maintaining unity.

  2. Donald, the satan theory is a good until you run into those other "Believers" who believe that satan only influences non-believer's.

    There's a big difference's in being joined together, being assembled together, being yoked together and "Being One" that's been united by God.

    When God does the joining His purpose in having been the ONE which joined anything will then in turn produce the "fruit" as the reason for having been joined.

    Until the church that associates itself with Christ Jesus stops ONLY believing for what any ordinary group of people can also do, ONLY then can God can show forth as ONLY God is able to DO.

    Otherwise its going to be business as usual and a guessing game as to which organization AND what that organization believes when it comes to finding a spiritual place of worship.

    The right address will always be where you find the presence of God as the Grace of God that is truly present and active as their Lord.

    Don't believe the lie that says, "The name says it all" or that "You can find the truth".

    In terms of God, Truth finds YOU but pray that He doesn't find you as an enemy.
